  • The Employee Assistance & Counseling Center provides consultation and training to support managers/supervisors in working effectively with employees who are experiencing performance problems in the workplace that may be related to problems in their personal lives. A referral to the Employee Assistance & Counseling Center allows the supervisor to concentrate on the performance problem while our staff assists the employee with possible underlying personal issues.
